Oden, Ball greet McCain
MONTGOMERY – Two area legislators were among a group of about 150 Republican loyalists at a fundraiser for presidential hopeful John McCain on Tuesday.
Reps. Jeremy Oden, R-Eva, and Mike Ball, R- Madison, and state Republican leaders paid $50 per person to visit with McCain before his address to a joint session of the Legislature.
“It is a great day when John McCain comes to Alabama,” Oden said. “I think he is great.”
